I read online about a few other people who had the blinking light problem. Suggestions were to press a series of other buttons in sequence. Didn't work. I went to the advice website and paid $24 to be told it was the control board. I ordered a control board. As I was preparing to install it, I noticed a black spot on the ribbon connector that was across two of the printed (?) flat wires. I gently scraped it off. It was shorting the two flat wires. I put it all back together with the old board, and all is working well. It's been a week.
